You have made a decision to upgrade your window treatments with the latest in style, fashion, and technology. Among the choices in fabric and design, you must also determine your exact need in order to be appropriately matched with the right light capacity for your situation.

Shading systems are available in a myriad of capacities from those that let light in, but protect your privacy, to complete light-tight shades for media rooms.

Rooms near sidewalks or offices with window access to outdoor public areas often need privacy shades. These modern window treatments focus more on offering privacy than blocking sunlight. Privacy shade systems are great for when you want to let the light in, but wish to keep out unwanted peering eyes.

Other systems are available that cut on glare or block out heat. These are particularly helpful during summer months when electric costs and environmental conservation become a concern.

For parents of newborn babies, blackout window treatments are a wise investment. After a long night of soothing a colicky baby or even just the constant ups and downs and interrupted sleep that is normal with a newborn, the last thing new parents want is sunlight waking the baby. Blackout blinds keep out as much as 99% of visible light. Stylish drapery can be used to keep light from seeping in around the edges, allowing you even just a few more moments of peaceful sleep.

When you require even more darkness – perhaps for a media room, photography darkroom, or even a bedroom – light-tight shades are what you need. This modern window treatment has the greatest possible light filtering capabilities. Able to block out all visible light, light tight shades can create a room that is completely void of light. To prevent light from entering around the edges where the window meets the wall, these shades use side channels to hold the fabric tight and seal off any gaps that might let in light.

Shading Systems, Inc. also has available more than fifty different types of room darkening fabrics, creating the ability to personalize each room in your home to match your tastes and exceed your expectations.
